Don’t watch sinister Taylor Swift video or risk bank-emptying attack that just takes seconds


TAYLOR SWIFT fans have been duped by AI deepfakes of the Cruel Summer singer promising them high-end dish wear.

The Internet scam promises Swifties free Le Cruset products for the low shipping fee of $9.96.


Watch out for a sinister Taylor Swift ‘deepfake’

The video is a deepfake of Swift using AI voice cloning technology persuading her fans to take advantage of the seemingly unbelievable steal.

All they need to do is enter their credit card number to get their hands on the singer’s favorite cookware line.

However, once the scammers have the credit card numbers, they can access the accounts and make charges of their own.

Fans never receive luxury cookery, but they do get an unfortunate case of identity fraud.

Le Cruset responded to disappointed fans by stating that the video was a scam and that all promotional opportunities would be posted to their official social media accounts, per McAfee.

The attack comes on the heels of other celebrities being targeted by deepfakes.

Last year, Kelly Clarkson found herself at the center of a similar dangerous scheme.

A deepfake of the pop singer made rounds on the internet promoting keto weight loss gummies.

In the altered video, the deepfake version of Clarkson appears to say, “We promise you will lose 35 pounds in three weeks,” per News 10.

Luckily, McAffee, an American intel security group, has developed a tool to help spot these scams before it’s too late.

The program is called Project Mockingbird and is geared toward detecting AI-generated audio in deepfakes.

When running on a deepfake, the software will show red lines where cloned audio is detected.

The company is also developing technology that could spot deepfake image detection, video detection, and text detection.
